A Guide to Federal Laws Prohibiting Sex Discrimination.
Commission on Civil Rights, Washington, DC.
In 1972 the jurisdiction of the United States Commission on Civil Rights was expanded to include discrimination on the basis of sex. Over the past ten years, Congress has passed several anti-discrimination measures, the President has issued Executive Orders, and several Federal agencies have promulgated regulations--all of which prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex. This publication is intended to inform individuals of their rights under the law, to explain the provisions of anti-sex discrimination measures, and to describe the practical steps which may be followed by individuals to insure protection of their rights. This booklet explains current Federal laws which prohibit sex discrimination, as well as policies and regulations of Federal agencies prohibiting sex discrimination. The booklet describes the major provisions of each law and regulation, and the complaint procedures established under each. Some sections are more extensive than others, depending on the degree of specificity and detail of each agency's procedures. (Author)
